Phil gives the update on the TKO by Muhammad Ali from the Ali/Shaver fight after Half-Step.
Seattle and Portland shows are seemingly always hot, year after year. This one from late 1977 is no exception.

Wow, what a show. Nobody weighing in on this one since 2008? First, a Betty board. Second, check out the Franklin's. You can't walk up to the song any slower and more sincerely. They kind of introduce you to the song, because the song indeed exists in a world of its own. Third, Betty board.

Very Nice Sound
Can't be sure about the entire show--skipped to the second set--but the sound is excellent. And the playing is very delicate, mellow. I like mellow shows sometimes, and if you do too, this one is worth it.
